Buddhism is the practice of Buddha’s teachings, also known as “Dharma” – a word that means “protection.” Buddha’s teachings are practical methods for overcoming the states of mind that lead to suffering. In this introductory talk, Gen Tenzin will explain how, by relying on Buddha’s teachings, we can develop the wisdom and inner strength that leads to lasting peace and freedom. He will also give a brief overview of Buddhist refuge practice in general, offering guidance and encouragement for cultivating this practice in our own life.
This intro talk will be followed by 2 sessions of a formal refuge retreat on Saturday, 2/27. These sessions are open to everyone and suitable for all levels of experience. You may also attend only the intro talk if you wish.
